Reaction Post: Christmas Carol

Posted by: Whochick

Well…I promised The Vig I’d do something interesting for my Reaction Post. …So I did. There may be a few spoilers. Overall, though, mostly…silliness.

    Maybe one day we could do a video commentary. We should put these reactions on cards we can hold up as we are reviewing an episode.

    Nicely done!! A lovely bit of silliness.

    Hasn’t the Doctor touched his various selves many times? Maybe (total speculation), the Brig’s problem was simply that he was too close to himself in his own time stream. Or, like many other things in almost 50 years of history, they just choose to ignore it for story sake. It does always make me giggle when the famously erratic TARDIS suddenly is blazzingly accurate when the story needs it to be. Watched “Silver Nemesis” this weekend and he flew the hell out of that ship and it landed perfectly in every place & time he needed it to be. Same with this ep.

    Then again, to paraphrase Martin Scorsese’s editor Thelma Schoonmaker, “Rules of canon are for p***ies”. ;-) (“Continuity” being her original quote)

    BTW, lovely glasses!

    I dunno, The Vig…would that be a bit too silly? Would a military gentleman suddenly appear and make us cut to the next skit?

    Erik, don’t forget about the “don’t touch the baby” bit in season one of the new show. Father’s Day, yeah? And I generally expect that The Doctor can (straighten up and) fly right if he really tries. He just doesn’t often make the effort. Either that or the TARDIS likes messing with him. :D (Thanks. *looks at you over the top of said glasses*)
